The new HiOS Launcher version 7.0.028.2, rolling out on the Google Play Store, comes with a new 4x1 "Recent apps" widget that lets you launch your favourite apps from the home screen.
The new Recent Apps widget, when placed on the home screen, shows four (4) of your frequently used apps stacked horizontally inside a white transparent background, and can be placed anywhere on the launcher. As its name implies, you'd guess the "Recent apps" widget changes every time you launch a new app, but it rather memorizes four of the apps you use frequently - just like the first four apps that show on top of your app drawer.

♠ Long-press a space on your home screen
